More than half the Odys I have closely inspected have small wrinkles in the flat inset panel where the rear license is attached to the hatch. I started looking because I noticed the dents in ours about a month after we bought it, when the light hit it in a way that made them stand out. Because of the placement and the frequency of similar wrinkles on other Odys, I am now pretty certain that it is a manufacturing defect. Our dealer said that their dent guys would probably be able improve upon them, but I haven't given them a shot at it yet.

If anyone does notice, just tell them, "It's where the parachute pops out, and you can't pack a drag 'chute perfectly flat... clever people those Japanese, huh?"
Yeah, I decided just to call it a feature, especially once I added the aftermarket door dings.
